Succeeding against the odds : the outcomes attained by Indigenous students in Aboriginal community-controlled adult education colleges by Deborah Durnan( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report quantifies the outcomes being achieved by Indigenous students in accredited vocational education and training (VET) programs provided by independent Aboriginal community-controlled adult education colleges. The study shows that outcomes achieved in this sector were better than those being achieved by Indigenous students in the VET sector as a whole, despite the fact that students in this sector have experienced more severe educational and social disadvantage than Indigenous VET students as a whole. Also, reasonable employment outcomes are being attained in this sector, but pay is lower than for TAFE graduates

Readings in Australian vocational education and training research by Chris, Ed Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume synthesizes contemporary vocational education and training (vet) research reports and papers published in Australia in recent years. "An Overview of the Research and Evaluation Effort in vet" (Chris Robinson, Peter Thomson) introduces and discusses the 12 reviews of vet research literature. "Learning in the Workplace" (Paul Hager) addresses the increasing emphasis on informal learning and the inherent problems. "Returns to Enterprises from Investment in vet" (Stephen Billett, Maureen Cooper) suggests patterns of enterprise investment vary by enterprise size, degree of specialization in the training required, and geographic location. "Vet and Small Business" (Jennifer Gibb) focuses on government role, training approach, suitable delivery modes, information and networking, credibility and quality of training, and equity. "Training Markets" (Damon Anderson) finds a lack of dispassionate and analytical research into their actual effects. "Entry-Level Training" (David Lundberg) concludes that research's contribution to informing policy on entry-level vet could and should have been greater. "Vocational Education in Schools" (Robin Ryan) recognizes the challenges of introducing vocational education into a school system. "Public and Private Training Provision" (Kate Barnett) deals with characteristics of vet providers and vet provision in a competitive training market. "Flexible Delivery of Training" (Peter Kearns) highlights the confusion surrounding adoption of these methods. "Assessor Training Programs" (Russell Docking) reports little effort to monitor program scope and quality, but substantial work to specify appropriate content. "Quality Assurance in vet" (Paul Hager) finds more case studies directed at program development than at evaluation. "Evaluation of vet" (Rod McDonald, Geoff Hayton) concludes evaluation has been little used for vet improvement. "The Impact of Research on vet Decision-Making" (Chris Selby Smith) finds vet research has not been sufficiently influential in affecting decision-making processes. A chapter index is appended. (Ylb)

Evaluating the contribution of competency-based training by Dianne Mulcahy( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contribution of competency-based training (cbt) to Australia's vocational education and training (vet) sector was examined through three data collection activities: review of Australian and international literature on vet and cbt; telephone survey of a sample of training managers of 195 companies across Australia; and 8 intensive case studies of competency-based vet programs throughout Australia. According to the literature review, the contribution of cbt to outcomes in vet is strongly related to the following: how competency is conceived; flexibility in the development and use of national competency standards; and processes and structures of training provision. The national telephone survey indicated that CBT's success relies on the following three factors: (1) specific skills, on-the-job learning and assessment, and recognized training with formal acknowledgment of skills in a qualifications structure; (2) enterprise development in adapting to and managing changing workplace realities; and (3) workplace and industry accountability. The case studies showed that CBT's outcomes depend on how competency is conceived and how the training process is defined. (The report contains 115 references. Appendixes, constituting approximately 40% of this document, contain the following: national survey information, descriptions of case study sites, case studies, telephone survey questionnaire, case study observation schedule, and case study interview questionnaire.)

Making a difference : the impact of Australia's indigenous education and training policy by Chris Robinson( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1989, Australia embarked on a concerted effort to eliminate the inequalities between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the rest of Australia's population with respect to access to, participation in, and outcomes from all levels of education and training. All Australian governments (federal, state, and territory) adopted the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Policy, which is based on the principle of indigenous involvement in education decision making. Since its adoption, the new national policy has facilitated a visible shift in attitudes and actions on the part of indigenous and nonindigenous people alike, and technical and further education institutes' and universities' accommodation of indigenous students' needs and aspirations has improved significantly. For the first time, parity between indigenous and nonindigenous people is within sight in some sectors and some age groups. However, more remains to be done in relation to achieving the policy's goals regarding parity of educational outcomes between indigenous and nonindigenous peoples. The most critical issue for future improvements is to create conditions encouraging indigenous people to achieve appropriate outcomes in education and training. (The report contains 19 references. Appended is the text of the Aboriginal Education [Supplementary Assistance] Act of 1989.) (mn)
